Francesco Gonnella

Francesco’s main fields of expertise are high-energy physics detectors and trigger/data-acquisition systems, with particular interest in digital electronics and FPGA programming. He has worked as a Research Fellow in Frascati, in the NA62 experiment at CERN, mainly focusing on electronics and data-acquisition. Within this period he spent 18 months at CERN and served as run coordinator during the first NA62 physics run. Since the end of 2015, he has been working in the University of Birmingham Particle Physics group In ATLAS Francesco is responsible for firmware development in phase-1 and phase-2 upgrades In DUNE Francesco is involved in the developing of the data acquisition system for the far detector. In NA62 Francesco in responsible for the trigger system of 2 detectors (RICH and large-angle photon vetoes) and developed many systems used in the NA62 data acquisition. He covered several positions of responsibility such as: Run coordinator, on-call expert for many systems.
